The now Airtel ExtraCredit is a value added service that allows it’s active subscribers to borrow airtime credit from Airtel and pay back later. Below, we will consider some conditions for participating in the Airtel ExtraCredit.

  • You will be charged 10% of every amount you borrow (i.e N5 from every N50 you loan from Airtel). e.g: A fee of N20 is deducted from N200 worth ExtraCredit.
  • You must recharge a minimum of 5 times per month.
  • You are giving a payback date of which you must pay back  to reignite your eligible status.
  • You must be an active Airtel subscriber for at least three months with an average airtime usage of N250/Month.
